Princess of cosmic music Gaye Su Akyol hosts our holograms tired of the daily grind at the Hologram İmparatorluğu (Hologram Empire) while emphasising that İstikrarlı Hayaller Hakikattir (Steady Dreams are the Truth) in her latest album.
Her interpretation in projects such as Toz ve Toz and Seni Görmem İmkansız have impressed many. The development of her story has grown to influence not only Turkey but the rest of the world. Cosmic forces brought rock and Classical Turkish music together in her first solo album Develerle Yaşıyorum released in 2014. The fame brought on by her highly theatrical shows performed with her galactic band consisting of Görkem Karabudak, Ali Güçlü Şimşek, Gökhan Şahinkaya and Emrah Atay has spread from ear to ear, town to town, festival to festival, country to country. Her sound that rockets forms of traditional Turkish music to the space age with rock’n’roll elements has declared total independence with her second album Hologram İmparatorluğu released in 2016. From Roskilde to Finland, Switzerland to Germany, Holland to Spain and Japan…Her latest album İstikrarlı Hayaller Hakikattir released in 2018 has been praised in respectable media outlets including The Guardian, NPR, The 405, Pitchfork, MixedworldMusic, The Wire, Songlines, Louder Than War and The Times. She has brought pleasant cosmic peace to TV series and films such as ‘Dip’ and ‘İstanbul Kırmızısı’ with her songs. Most recently Gaye Su Akyol has crossed paths with Hey! Douglas for the song Ayva Çiçek Açmış, and she took us on a colourful space tour that we’d rather not leave in the video clip for İstikrarlı Hayaller Hakikattir.
Our captain Gaye Su Akyol will be at Salon İKSV for a galactic voyage to abstract the faithful passengers of steady dreams from this world with her cosmic powers.
This event has an age restriction of 18.
